One of the first cage-less habitat zoos in America, the San Antonio Zoo is nestled in what once was a limestone quarry. Over the years, it has received a variety of awards (with respect to its white rhinoceros breeding program, in particular), and it features a number of great highlights. With a mission  “to inspire its community to love, engage with, act for and protect animals and the places they live,” the San Antonio Zoo welcomes visitors numbering just over a million, and it’s open year-round.
